Part 1 of my Furtherfield case study chapter - Brit Art, Situationism, Fluxus...
This is Draft 2.5 of the first quarter of one of my 3 case study chapters, on the London-based Furtherfield art group.
Some weeks ago I posted a quarter of another of my case studies, the Hong Kong In-Media citizen journalism project.
It seems i can only work in quarter chapters - perhaps this is like semi-tones in music....
Anyway, most of this part of the chapter says very little about furtherfield, and quite a lot about Brit Art. This is partly because I am not doing a separate chapter as literature review, so all of my background stuff needs to be woven through the relvant chapters.
I have written the first draft of the other 3 sections in this chapter, but i dont have time to redraft them now -- so i will not post them here yet. Theymight make it here in August or September.
Next week i have to start redrafting in a major way the chapter on my 3rd case study, the Container project in Jamaica. this is quite daunting as I have not looked at the chapter for over a year, and I know it is a real mess. i got too sidetracked with histories of slavery and rasta. If I keep to my self-imposed schedule I only have 2 weeks to write new stuff for it, and rewrite what I already have.
I hope everyone is making better progress than me - last week i wasted 3 days writing an abstract for a conference that luckily got rejected.
I sleep badly, waking every few hours...and acupuncture is not helping much ... the only thing that will help is to finish this beast I suspect. So that is another 5 months and 2 weeks of arse to the grindstone...
